Cant sleep at night. Only during the day.?
No matter how hard i try, i can only sleep during the day. only when i've stayed up for days can i sleep at night. Its the worst feeling in the world, and i feel like im going crazy, because i know im tired but my body wont sleep. i cant afford to go to the doctor for meds, so what do i do?! I've tried fixing my 'sleep schedule' but thats not it either. i had this same problem years ago while i was in foster care but it gradually went away, but now its coming back. im thinking its due to stress, but what do i do, i feel like im at a dead end and i just dont feel good at all. it cant be insomnia because i can sleep, just during the day. HELP!

Robin,

It sounds like you need some pretty radical approaches to try to overcome this. Here are a few:

1. Eat a protein snack 2 hrs before you want to go to bed. Don't eat or drink after.
2. Wear gloves and socks to bed and keep the bedroom at 70 degrees
3. Start an audiobook (with a timer so it turns off in 20 min) just before you lay down to keep your mind occupied.
4. Do a brain dump on paper before you go to bed - just write down everything that is bouncing around in your head.
5. Last but not least, take deep breaths where each breath cycle takes at 10 seconds and as you are inhaling or exhaling, focus on the sound of your breath and the feel of the air rushing over your lip. You can count breaths if you want.

By the way, your problem can still be considered a form of insomnia. The brain dump should be particularly effective.

I have an excellent resource with a lot more radical tips on how to get to sleep in more detail. I have posted the link below if you are interested.

Good luck finally catching your Z's again,
John
